Traditional Chinese Medicine and Kung Fu have always been a part of Chinese traditional culture. TCM is used to treat people’s illness, and Kung Fu practice is used for self healing, maintaining health and prevent illness - hence TCM and Kung Fu are very much linked together.
At Kung Fu Zen Garden Retreat, alongside Kung fu training you can get experience of the external therapy of TCM, including acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping therapy ,etc. On the issue of prevention and treatment of disease, external therapy of TCM coincides with the internal therapy of TCM.
External therapy follows the theory of correspondence between man and universe,and regulates the balance of yin-yang of people by combining idea and physical means. It is secure, convenient and effective, and it’s especially suitable for the persons who are unable to take the medicine.
In the environment full of Zen, the combination of external therapy of TCM and traditional Kung Fu practice will give you the opportunity to gain your best physical and mental healthy state.
Cupping therapy refers to the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine that uses a heated cup to create a local suction when applied on the skin (on a precisely chosen areas of the meridian system according to the illness). This technique is used to rapidly evacuate a pathogenic factor from the body by forcing it to be evacuated through the suction applied. Cupping helps to unstuck and give a better flow to the microcirculation which later leads to healthier and stronger body immune system.
